Make Beauty

A new brand (new to us anyway) has landed in the office this week so I thought I’d share with you. Make is from New York and is made up of a mix of colour cosmetics, skincare and tools. They have a vegan section and are It 100% cruelty free. 10% of the sales also go towards the We see beauty foundation, which supports women-led, worker owned cooperative businesses.
 Their ethos is Slow beauty. Creating everyday products that suit every day needs rather than being fashion or trend led.

 We have a few pieces to share with you…

For the skin we have the Marine Salve.  It’s a topical balm that has multi area use. Massage some into cracked lips, dry cuticles or rough skin. It protects against environmental aggressors. 
Its main ingredient is petrolatum (mineral oil) so it’s not something I would personally slather over my face but on small areas it will moisturize and protect. It also contains marine algae, shea butter and squalane so it’s super hydrating.

Sea Salt exfoliator
 This is a duo pot for the lips. One is an exfoliator containing gritty sea salt in a balm of olive, shea butter and jojoba.
 The lip balm is a nourishing mix of shea, beeswax, jojoba and grape seed oil.
The colour
We have are the Universal stick. This is quite a unique product in that it looks pretty uninspiring when you first apply it but as you blend, the pigments release and transform into a totally different colour.
 We have the shade Cedar which, looks mauve in the tube but warms to a soft peachy taupe on the skin. The universal stick is a lightweight balmy texture which feels slightly oily on application.

You can use it as a blush or on the eye lids. You can even mix it with lipstick to give a more jewel toned shade. This is really nice to use under your eye shadow to increase colour pay off.

Dew pots and blot pots are similar in that they give a soft flush of colour with a moisturized finish. Best used on the slightly higher parts of the face as it reflects a radiant sheen. Pigment is set in a base of lanolin so not a product for the oilier skin. The blot pots have slightly more colour pigment to them.
I’ve only seen a very small collection of products from Make and I think they may be a nice brand for editorial or to create an evening looks with, I feel some of the ingredients within are a little disappointing though. Lots of allergens and cheap ingredients such as mineral oil, lanolin and talc and for the price point that this brand is set at, I would expect higher quality ingredients.

  1. Sounds like they have great products! Hopefully they can phase out the lower ingredients though.
